My mother is diabetic. She suffers from cold feet and gets very ill in winter. What can we do to help her. Can she take flu injection?

The flu injection is a good idea. Her vascular status must be checked - this can be one of the complications of diabetes to have poor blood flow - but your doctor can evlaute this.
